BLACK LABEL SOCIETY Taps DOUBLEDRIVE Drummer

BLACK LABEL SOCIETY has recruited Mike Froedge (pictured below; SPEED X, DOUBLEDRIVE) as its new drummer.

Will Hunt left BLACK LABEL SOCIETY in late February in order to join his EVANESCENCE bandmates in the studio for the recording sessions for the band's third album.

Sitting behind the kit for BLACK LABEL SOCIETY's recent European dates was Johnny Kelly (TYPE O NEGATIVE, SEVENTH VOID), who made his live debut with the band on February 25 at La Cigale in Paris, France.

BLACK LABEL SOCIETY's "The Song Remains Not The Same" will be released on May 10 via Entertainment One Music. The offering features unplugged versions of material from BLACK LABEL SOCIETY's latest album, "Order Of The Black", as well as additional material recorded during the "Order Of The Black" sessions. "The Song Remains Not The Same" was conceived, created and compiled by BLS mainman Zakk Wylde himself and the title is, of course, a nod to one of Wylde's favorite bands, LED ZEPPELIN.

The latest single from BLACK LABEL SOCIETY's "Order Of The Black", "Darkest Days" went to radio adds on March 21. The track showcases Wylde's softer side with soulful lyrics, a hauntingly beautiful melody and captivating piano played by the guitar icon himself. An alternate version of the song featuring country superstar John Rich will appear on "The Song Remains Not The Same".

BLACK LABEL SOCIETY will return to North America in early May to headline Fuse's Uranium Tour 2011 presented by Mistress Juliya.
